8 LIFESAVING AND SPORT The International Life Saving Federation (ILS) has three strategic priorities drowning prevention, lifesaving and lifesaving sport. As the international federation for lifesaving and lifesaving sport, ILS leads, supports and partners with national and international organisations committed to drowning prevention, aquatic safety supervision, emergency responses and sport. ILS is the only global organisation with the prime focus on drowning prevention. ILS has official relations with the World Health Organization and is the International Federation for lifesaving sport, recognized by the International Olympic Committee. Lifesaving sport helps develop our lifesavers' skills, knowledge and techniques, and plays an important role in providing opportunities to enhance global relationships among IILS Member Organisations. Lifesaving sport engages youth and adults from all global regions in the mutual pursuit of excellence in lifesaving. The global focus on cooperation and teamwork to reduce the burden of drowning is a compelling opportunity. Increasing the participation of youth in lifesaving sport is part of the engagement strategy. Lifesaving sport is an important component of this mission. The ILS World Lifesaving Championships and ILS Regional Lifesaving Championships play an important part in bringing together the worlds lifesavers on a regular basis helping our members learn from the experience of other countries and to challenge themselves to improve and perform. The public profile and media exposure to lifesaving sport helps profile our vision, mission, values and strategic goals as the world authority in the global effort to prevent drowning. On behalf of the ILS Board of Directors, I thank the members and member organisations of the ILS Sport Commission, Committees and Working Groups for their dedication in composing this competition manual, and for their constant endeavours to promote international lifesaving competitions around the world. I congratulate ILS member organisations on the continuing growth in participation in lifesaving sport and the ILS Regional and World Lifesaving Championships. Dr. Stephen B. Beerman, BSc., BSR, MD, CCFP, FCFP President, International Life Saving Federation iv ILS COMPETITION MANUAL (2011)

9 PREFACE TO THE SIXTH EDITION ILS publishes each edition of the ILS Competition Manual at least 12 months prior to the next world championships. Each edition benefits from the learning at the previous World Lifesaving Championships.

23 SECTION 1 ILS COMPETITION MANUAL INTERNATIONAL LIFE SAVING FEDERATION

24 Section 1 The International Life Saving Federation 1.1 HISTORY Section 1 THE INTERNATIONAL LIFE SAVING FEDERATION The International Life Saving Federation (ILS) is a global, non-profit organisation composed of national lifesaving organisations from around the world. ILS leads the worldwide effort to reduce water-related injury and death. Put simply, the goal of ILS is world water safety. Organised international aquatic lifesaving activities date from 1878 when the first World Congress was hosted in Marseilles, France. The recognition of a need for an international forum to exchange ideas led to the establishment of the Fédération Internationale de Sauvetage Aquatique (FIS) in The primary focus of FIS activity was in swimming pools and stillwater. In 1971, World Life Saving (WLS) was established with a primary focus on surf beaches. In 1993, FIS and WLS merged to create the International Life Saving Federation (ILS) as the single, global organisation overseeing lifesaving and water safety. 1.2 HUMANITARIAN GOALS ILS pursues its humanitarian goals through the work of national lifesaving organisations and by: building the capacity to reduce drowning within targeted at-risk communities of the world positioning ILS as the international leader, advocate and global bestpractice authority for medical, education and rescue issues in lifesaving and lifeguarding forming alliances and advocating and implementing strategies to reduce the drowning of children globally increasing participation in lifesaving sport increasing the participation of women and non-native English-speaking individuals growing and diversifying ILS revenues ILS is a unique international federation in that it sponsors and sanctions athletic competition as an important method of furthering its humanitarian lifesaving work. Lifesaving through competition is one of the established goals. 2 ILS COMPETITION MANUAL (2011)

25 The International Life Saving Federation Section GOVERNANCE AND STRUCTURE i) ILS member organisations make up the ILS General Assembly. The General Assembly elects a President and Secretary General. The General Assembly establishes ILS priorities and meets every four years. i 1.4 ILS COMMISSIONS ILS decentralises its affairs under the management of four Regional Boards: Africa, Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe. The four regional presidents serve as ILS Vice-Presidents. The governing bodies of the four Regions appoint other members to the worldwide board of directors. Together, the ILS President, Secretary General, regional presidents and other members make up the ILS Board of Directors and oversee the affairs of the Federation between meetings of the General Assembly. i) The Drowning Prevention Commission provides leadership in the global effort to prevent drowning with an emphasis on reducing drowning of children, in developing countries, regions and populations with high drowning mortality and drowning as a result of aquatic disasters. i The Lifesaving Commission seeks to enhance the quality of lifesaving and drowning prevention activities throughout the world through identification of best practice, development of recommended minimum standards, promoting and encouraging adherence to these standards, and dissemination of lifesaving information in the areas of public education, medical care, rescue and lifesaver education. The Sport Commission oversees all aspects of ILS sport in the international sport arena. The Sport Commission establishes lifesaving sport rules, procedures, and standards, and authorises world championships. Through lifesaving sport, ILS aims to attract young people to lifesaving; to encourage lifesaving technique development, and; to maintain and enhance the image of lifesaving. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) recognise ILS as the international federation for lifesaving sport. ILS Full Members are recognised as the sport governing bodies for lifesaving in their respective countries. ILS is a member of the General Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF), the International World Games Association, and the Association of IOC Recognised International Sports Federations (ARISF).

28 Section 2 Lifesaving Competition Section 2 LIFESAVING COMPETITION 2.1 ILS AUTHORITY The sport of lifesaving contributes to the worldwide drowning prevention mission of the International Life Saving Federation (ILS). As the international federation for lifesaving sport, the International Life Saving Federation establishes rules for the purpose of ensuring a safe and fair system, within which lifesaving competitions may be regulated and conducted. The International Life Saving Federation alone shall authorise World Lifesaving Championships. The words "World" and "ILS" may not be used in connection with any lifesaving competition without the consent of the ILS. The International Life Saving Federation alone may sanction other lifesaving competitions. All ILS-sanctioned lifesaving competitions must use ILS rules World championships i) ILS shall authorise the following world championships every two years: i iv) National Teams World Lifesaving Championships Interclub World Lifesaving Championships Masters World Lifesaving Championships ILS may authorise other event-specific World Lifesaving Championships as appropriate (e.g., surf boats, inflatable rescue boats, beach run). ILS may also authorise non-championship, demonstration events (e.g., march past, distance ocean ski) to be organised at the same time as world championships. All World Lifesaving Championships occur under the auspices of ILS. ILS may conduct the championships but more usually will award the championships to a member national lifesaving organisation to conduct on its behalf. v) ILS Management Committee: For world championships, ILS shall appoint a Management Committee responsible for the management of the competition on behalf of ILS. The Management Committee will appoint championships officials and liaise with the host organising committee. The ILS Management Committee shall have jurisdiction over all matters not assigned by the rules to the chief referee or other officials. 6 ILS COMPETITION MANUAL (2011)
